In performing a radiated susceptibility test of electronic equipment it is important that it can be done in an accurate and repeatable manner. When performing the test in a reverberation chamber, only the average received power in a reference antenna has to be measured. Different test values, e.g., the maximum rectangular component of the electric field or the maximum total resultant of the electric field, can be calculated outgoing from the average received power. The accuracy of such procedure is higher than the accuracy of a direct measurement of the electric fields.
